would all be crushed together. Still, fascinating glimpse into smart-people world. Sometimes I wish I found maths interesting.

Just spotted a link up top to “criminal probability theorem”. Might check out what that’s about. Have thought for many years that a mathematician or

scientist needs to quantify “reasonable doubt”, what probability the actual threshold for conviction falls on and whether this varies in accordance to

the psychological impact of cases or the perceived consequences of wrong acquital. (about the only stat I’ve encountered is that the threshold probability of guilt for execution is Texas can be inferred to be .92)

It’s a Spanish movie.

]]>Draw a mint from the box labeled “mixed”. Since the labels are all wrong, the box labeled “mixed” must not be a mixed box at all. The first mint pulled will reveal the proper label for the box.

If sweet, then the box labeled “sweet” must be “anise” and the box labeled “anise” must be mixed.

If anise, the box labeled “anise” must be sweet, and the box labeled “sweet” must be mixed.

BTW I think the answer is “one”.
